One of my favorite lenders wrote the following article which is quite timely for our area.

Homes under $300000 are still very slowly increasing in price. The main reason is the lack of inventory. Homes is the $500000 range have basically remained flat, with about the same number of buyer and sellers and a 4 month supply or so of homes. Above $800000 the market is mixed depending on the area and type of product condos have had a slight reduction in price over the last -6 months and luxury homes above 5 mils have either been flat or trending slightly down. We at Florida Preferred Mortgage still have jumbos rates in the 4s and mortgages under $423000 can put down as little as 3% on conventional loans.

4 Tips before Buying Waterfront Property in 2017

Buying or selling real estate is one of the toughest decisions of the life of an individual. This is because it has an impact on many crucial factors such as quality of life, financial security. Having a property on water is the dream of many people as they are excited by the happiness and peacefulness they would get with the views of sunrise and sunsets. The roar of the waves or the view of the crystal clear water in itself is a big incentive for those looking for a home after retirement. There is always a great demand for waterfront properties. This is why it is trickier to buy and sell a property involving waterfront. But if you follow these tips, you can make your decision easier.

1.    Contact a real estate agent who is truly a specialist of waterfront properties

This is the first and foremost requirement whether you are buying or selling a waterfront property. Agents who deal with these properties day in and day out not only know the best deals available among these properties but also the loopholes involved with some of these properties.

2.    More than the house, it is the waterfront that is more important

The real estate agent would try to impress you with the features of the house if he knows that swimming in the water is mucky or the approach to the water body is not that easy. It could be that the property is not totally private. Whatever the reason, pay more attention to  the waterfront than the amenities inside the house as after all it is the location that has attracted you to come to the area.

3.    Make sure that property suits your lifestyle

Even if the view of the waves is great and you also get mesmerizing views of the sunrise and sunset, are you prepared to buy the house if it takes about half an hour to reach the water body? All your enthusiasm will die down in a day or two and you will give up on the idea to go and swim to refresh yourself if it takes so much to reach the water body. If you are passionate about sunrise and sunset views and sounds of roaring ocean waves, then it is OK as it suits your lifestyle.

4.    Besides beauty and nature, strength of the structure is important

Do not pay a high amount for a waterfront property only because you are getting serene and peaceful lifestyle to live. See that the house is built to take storms and hurricanes and takes abuse from elements in its stride.
